's a relationship among people, technology, and work processes. it's not a property or a capability that could be described to people or robots independently, and that's why the term robotic geologists is so misleading. the relation of people and robots in practical work is difficult even for the scientists to describe. mir scientists have said they could do any day what what took the rover many months, but they are thinking mostly about those long drives. astronauts would leave the rovers in the dust, but there's no shortcut for the hours required to do a spectral analysis, or a pixel by pixel scan of an infrared panorama. no bloody has used instruments like these in the field before. so how the rover's automation and human actions are dependent on each other can be difficult to explain. because we don't think about it in practice. in terms of what's called phenomenology, the rover is seen through, as we say like using a cane. in terms of, the rover is embodied in our activity. it becomes transparent like a hammer, a bicycle, or even an automobile. we hit, we ride, we go places. we don't have

and it's important to realize with any type of motion picture technology people want -- it's not anything. in fact there was a fiction film with grover cleveland in 18, whatever that would have been. the mckinley inauguration is on the film and people have wanted to apply film to presidency forever but we just reached a point in time in 2008 when the technology was enough that one person rather than i would say from the 60's onward about three people could actually do this work. and more importantly than that i think it's a personality meeting technology moment. for instance in the 1960 election that talks about the jfk and how -- telegenic he was an hard already been used by several presents beforehand that he had this unique temperament and look that really spoke well to television. i think you have a similar thing with the internet and barack obama it and other people have tried to harness the power of the internet to what extent they could but i think there is a reason why say didn't make an music video about howard dean. it wouldn't quite be the same. also at the very heart
